We evaluated 675 men and 190 women who had no symptoms or history of clinical CHD, to determine the prevalence and risk factor correlates of CAC deposits as a marker of atherosclerosis. Measurements were taken noninvasively by ultrafast CT. The presence and extent of CAC deposits as measured by ultrafast CT was determined in all subjects, who also received(More)
Acute coronary syndromes result in a global impairment of coronary blood flow with nonculprit artery blood flow being associated with culprit artery flow and vice versa. Improvements in nonculprit artery flow are related to improvements in culprit artery flow after percutaneous intervention; nonculprit arteries with abnormal flow sustain greater(More)
OBJECTIVES This study sought to investigate the effects of tirofiban versus placebo on the incidence of adverse cardiac outcomes and coronary artery restenosis at 6 months. BACKGROUND Tirofiban is a highly selective, short-acting inhibitor of fibrinogen binding to platelet glycoprotein IIb/IIIa. In a recent clinical study, tirofiban reduced the incidence(More)
Coronary artery calcium is invariably associated with atherosclerosis and has been linked to an increased risk of coronary events. Ultrafast computed tomography (CT) was recently used to document the presence and relative quantity of coronary calcium. The use of the self-reported coronary risk factors to identify persons with coronary calcium as documented(More)
The Thrombolysis In Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) frame count is a relative index of coronary flow that measures time by counting the number of frames required for dye to travel from the ostium to a standardized coronary landmark in a cineangiogram filmed at a known speed (frames/s). We describe a new method to measure distance along arteries so that(More)
BACKGROUND Although the Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction flow grade system is a widely used index of coronary blood flow, it has important limitations. We recently described a new continuous measure of blood flow in native coronary arteries, the Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction frame count (TFC), and sought to extend this method to coronary artery(More)
This paper presents a brief survey on Automatic Speech Recognition and discusses the major themes and advances made in the past years of research, an appreciation of the fundamental progress that has been accomplished in this important area of speech communication. After years of research and development the accuracy of automatic speech recognition remains(More)
